Wow I've really not had much to blog about. I'm not planning on buying much Gypsy Queen. Maybe a few packs, but seeing as I'm in A Cardboard Problems group break so hopefully I'll get some goodies outta that. No boxes for me, especially at over a hundred bucks a pop. I'm saving up for Series 2 and maybe some A&G.
But before my vacation I posted my box break of my one box of Heritage and I stated I had no intent on putting this set together and Jeremy over at No One's Going to Read This Blog asked if he could have the Mets and Team cards I had pulled. After a few emails back and forth after I got back from my trip we worked out a deal. I sent him all the Heritage he wanted and went through his needs lists and filled a good amount. Well yesterday I got home and had a nice little package waiting for me.
Jeremy sent me a few cards from my needs list. A few 2010 Heritage, 2009 T206, 2010 Topps inserts, and some random and very nice Brewers and Packers cards which don't need to be shown here but were very much appreciated. He also sent me these goodies for my PC's and team collections.
Speaking of shiny.
Jeremy also sent along some nice parallel cards for me.
Miles from Miller. Now that Mr. Braun will be a Brewer until at least 2020. This means I will actively try to acquire and will trade for relics, autos, ect outside of just collecting him for team sets. I already had a nice collection of Braun cards in my Brewers collection and have been picking up cheap cards of his here and there, I also got a nice lot from Brian at 30 year old Cardboard a while back.
I think the best card that Jeremy sent along and was a total surprise was this bad boy.
You can read the comic that I came up with here at the 13 Tenets.
While your there you can explore a lot of my other comic strips. In the Legion of Extraordinary Objects there's a little guy named Samurai Mushroom. I actually had a friend commission a strip of the Samurai Mushroom on his own and that snowballed into a series, which of course I never published until I started posting it at the 13 Tenets.
Whew. Anywho, thanks Jeremy what a great trade!!!
